Are there breads that you remember that you just can't find anymore? Breads that used to be commonly available but hardly anyone seems to make these days?
My curiosity is two-fold. It's partly a life-long interest in folkways; the things that figure prominently in our memories and experiences. It's also partly about an idea I've been toying with; putting together a series of classes about those breads that wre dear to us but have vanished into the homogenizer of modern culture.
For instance, one of my students mentioned a longing for salt sticks. That's something I've never had but that he had grown up with. I'm sure that there are others in your experience, too. I'd love to hear about them and what makes them special to you.
